Time absolutely flies when you’re trying to soak up every single moment of your senior year. I haven’t forgotten about blogging, I have actually attempted to do it every day, but either been too busy, or not known how to put my thoughts into viable words. Not that I can say I will do much better now, but I have finally found a spare moment to try.
The first month and a half of school have been a blur. I’ve honestly just been going through the motions. At this point, yes school is definitely important, but it’s on the back burner. Once again, I have taken on potentially more than I can handle, but I am excited about everything that I am involved in, and couldn’t say no, and couldn’t give anything up. I am co-directing a joint advertising and public relations event, ADPR Connection, which will be held November 8th on campus. This event has taken up a majority of my time, as I have spent countless hours organizing everything. I am really excited as it is a wonderful opportunity to network with so many professionals in the Atlanta Area… and seeing as I definitely need a job post-graduation, it couldn’t be any more perfect of an opportunity for me. I also was recently elected to be on the Executive Board for PRSSA as the Digital Media Director. I am so grateful for all the wonderful opportunities that have come my way. I am definitely capitalizing on them, and taking everything out of them that I can in order to be successful in my future.
I suppose there are a few life lessons, changes, realizations…whatever you want to call it, that I have been thinking about over the past few weeks. To sum it up– Life happens. You don’t always get what you want, but if you are patient, work hard and attempt to have a great time along the way, things will work out in your favor. Yes, this has taken me a solid 3 1/2 years to figure out, or more so understand. I may have heard this about 1920349248 times, but not until I sit here and think of my life over the past few months, do I truly understand. Girls will be bitches, guys will be ass holes, you will have to make sacrifices, studying does suck, working in order to have money to have fun isn’t always fun, but you know what… all of these things make you realize what you really want in life. I know that I want to spend my senior year being happy. It’s really as simple as that. If people want to judge me for some decisions I make, so be it. For now, I can honestly say I have made some of the best memories in these past few months. I know where my priorities are. I want a great job, I want to spend a month in Europe with one of my best friends, I want to seize any opportunity presented to me (New motto: “Say yes to everything”), I want to go out on a Monday night, I want to watch Sunday night movies with my roommates, I want to sleep in til after 11 for no reason, I want to be independent. I want it all. Now that may be too much to ask, but I’m living this year with No Regrets and urge you to do the same. You only get one life, so you might as well take advantage of it!
